As you know, we all have an impact on the environment, and here, at our Worthing printers, it is no different. However, as a company, we are very conscious of our responsibilities and we not only recycle waste paper but ink tins, printing plates and industrial wipes.
We use vegetable based inks, all our plate making is chemical free, and we use shredded postal waste paper for packing.
Our team encourages our clients to opt for FSC papers or those in the Carbon Capture Scheme over recycled papers, as nowadays recycled papers often have a greater carbon footprint. Kenads became a Carbon Capture Company back in 2015.
We take our corporate social responsibility very seriously and work towards reducing as many impacts on the environment as we can. The Carbon Capture Scheme, with Woodland Carbon, helps companies reduce their carbon footprint with a tree planting scheme in the UK.
We are proud to be part of creating new woodlands and harnessing the power of nature, by the most simple and natural way to reduce carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.
Trees provide us with the oxygen with which to breath and are much-loved homes to a myriad of creatures from bees and butterflies to dormice and birds.
We all love to spend time outside and being part of planting new woodland and increasing recreational spaces for people in the UK is an aspect of working at our printers which we all appreciate. The UK is one of the least wooded countries in Europe, with tree cover of just 13% compared to a European average of 37%. By reducing our business’s carbon footprint and supporting nature and recreation, at the same time, it is a win-win situation not only for us but also for our customers across the South.
We look forward to seeing more native woods and trees in the UK for everyone to enjoy.

The Woodland Carbon projects are managed to national forestry standards and are publicly registered and independently verified. We are therefore confident that we are partners in a responsible scheme that follows forest management standards and procedures.
